The Alice Paul Institute (API) empowers women and girls to accept leadership challenges in their lives, communities and workplaces. Alice Paul fought for equality for all, first as a leader in the final campaign for American women's voting rights and then as the author of the Equal Rights Amendment. At Paul's Mt. Laurel, NJ birthplace, Paulsdale, API offers leadership development programs for girls in grades 4-12. Our programs teach leadership skills using historic and contemporary women as role models. In workshops at school, summer camps and institutes at Paulsdale, girls draw inspiration from the women who broke through barriers of yesterday. They learn that a leader is one who makes a conscious decision to affect positive change in her school and community and that one person can, truly, make a difference. Like Alice Paul, girls leave Paulsdale with a dedication to make the world a fair and just place for all.
